Birmingham Skeptics present the Mathematics of Juggling
Dr Colin Wright will demonstrate a selection of the patterns and skills of juggling while at the same time developing a simple method of describing and annotating a class of juggling patterns. By using elementary mathematics these patterns can be classified, leading to a simple way to describe those patterns that are known already, and a technique for discovering new ones.
Disguised as an entertaining description of juggling, the presentation is really about science and mathematics, how they work, what they mean, and why they’re important. The talk has been given in locations as diverse as New Zealand, Australia, Chicago, Seattle, Sweden, The Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, The Isle of Man, and all over mainland UK, including last year’s QED.
